On Facebook, the media eats itself. Ten days ago, The Daily closed its doors. This week, Newsweek published its last print issue. Today, this ad appears to be banking on picking up old Daily customers by selling them on Newsweek’s digital edition using Facebook ads. That’s not depressing at all.

So the week of The Daily’s closing, they break a story revealing that city buses across the country are adding audio-recording mechanisms to eavesdrop on conversations. What terrible timing for a scoop. :/

On shedding tears for dead Murdoch projects

thecallus says: Shed no tears for dead Murdoch projects.

» SFB says: Why not? Does it make the people who worked on it terrible people because of the guy who kept the lights on? I understand the hate for Murdoch, but let’s put it this way: Real people work/worked these jobs (including, as I pointed out, some people who work on this site), and The Daily had few of the ideological issues that Murdoch’s oft-criticized tabloids or Fox News did. Maybe it didn’t work, but it was a constructive idea, not a destructive one. — Ernie @ SFB

First iPad-only newspaper ‘The Daily’ shutting down on December 15th

:( A real heartbreaker. As you guys might know, some of SFB’s staff worked for The Daily until a recent round of layoffs. (I also did a piece for the publication a while back.) Peter, who you might know as BrooklynMutt, also worked on it. They also ran one of the best big-media Tumblrs. It was a great publication with solid design and a forward-looking approach — a real trailblazer. Its death is all-around sad. — Ernie @ SFB

I think it is the future of print,” said Josh Martin, group director of media strategy at ID Media. “I think their model of a free trial, followed by a paid model is a good bet. They have a strong product. I don’t think other publications in the marketplace — branded pubs with high-end premium audiences — have money to build a field ahead of the audience.

Great piece by Josh pondering The Daily, one year later. An interesting model, no matter how much Lana Del Rey they cover. (Disclosure: Our writer Seth Millstein is a writer and reporter for The Daily. Also, we subscribe.)

To celebrate the debut of “Born to Die,” Flash Daily compiled a definitive history of the controversial “hypster” songstress known as Lana Del Rey

Whoa. Just six pages on Lana Del Rey? Clearly there’s a deficit of Gangster Nancy Sinatra coverage in The Daily.

Hey all, I just snagged a writing gig at The Daily and I am so excited I could bust!

First, I have to thank Anthony De Rosa (Soup), who recommended me. Anthony’s been invaluable with his encouragement, advice and overall generosity. Anthony, I can’t thank you enough.

Second, Matt Cerrone of the incredibly successful MetsBlog. Matt has been awesome. He believed in me and brought me over to run SNY’s Tumblr, which was a huge confidence boost and I know helped me land this gig. Matt, I’ll always be in your debt. 

Third, and MOST important, is my grammar geek girl and love of my life, Rebecca (PPG). She’s my whole world. Flat-out, this just would not be happening without her. I love you, baby. 

Last, but not least, are you guys. Thanks for the follows, reblogs, likes, and all that Tumblr stuff you do. Seriously, your support has been fantastic! And greatly appreciated. Now, go out there and do your ‘Mutt duty, subscribe to The Daily today!

Congrats to one of our favorite Tumblrs! I haven’t done anything for them lately, but I did write a piece about hot dogs for them last month. Great work! — Ernie @ SFB
